    Wonder why someone just didn't knock him out. He looks like a crack head to me.

    Not sure. But he did cause a disturbance and nobody did knock him out. I agree, the guy had to be on drugs.

    He certainly was verbalizing a threat to a group of people, arrest him and give him a psyc eval asap!

    Hmmmm. I agree that someone should have done something. I arresting him going to solve whatever problem he has? I doubt it. Are they going to arrest him EVERY time he does something people don't like? Honestly, I'm surprised the people in the theater didn't just tell him to shut the hell up, and then help the people who worked there toss him out. For them to get "excited", and start heading for the exits like a bunch of wusses is a little much. IMHO. What happened to the "Don't tread on me" bluster?

    A patron disrupting a film should be ejected by theater personnel. How on Earth did the police get involved?

    Thats a great point that really shows how weve become non participants in our own lives and situations and deferred that to "The Authorities". Are we really comfortable with deferring our demise to someone thats 15 minutes or more away from saving your ass? What would have happened if Todd Beamer (RIP Sir) had just said, well let the police deal with this? Todd had no chance of saving his tail or anyone elses sitting in his seat. He had some chance of surviving if he did something instead of nothing. Sadly, he couldnt prevent the crash but he saved the lives of thousands by taking the law into his own hands!

    We had a thread that discussed Vigilantes and some folks believe we dont have the right to exact justice via self defense even if life and limb are involved, just run away, call 911 and pray! Once upon a time, The Good Samaritan wasnt just the boyscout that walked the old lady through traffic! The Theater shooter a couple years ago wouldnt have survived the shooting or shot nearly as many folks if they had reacted instead of Dying In Place!

    Two years later- What if the adults in this theater grabbed the guy, hogtied him and called the cops? According to what district your in, you might be charged with assault before they hand you the keys to the city for doing good! Were creating throngs of powerless Sheeple by teaching them "See a gun, Run" while leaving out the important fact that you cant outrun a bullet!

    Because of his erratic behavior... The theater staff has no training to handle a destabilized person. What if they have a weapon on them?? Are other people in danger??... or is this person just a drunk or high @hole who's of a mind that "I can do or say whatever I want.. the rules of civility do not apply to me... the constitution says I can (yes.. they DO use that excuse sometimes).. and I'll just SUE anyone who tries to stop me!!" ...We must face the fact that the World (or even the small pocket you're currently standing on) has become an unpredictable and (sometimes) dangerous place. It is the reason I have decided to carry concealed (as I'm sure it's the reason for most of you here as well).

    I've posted this in another thread... but my Daddy had a saying.. "You can always go out in the woods and poke a bear with a stick, but I personally don't think that's such a good idea... Because what happens next is on the head of the poker, not the one being poked."
    ... and as of late, I see an awful lot of people on daily basis walking around with sticks looking for something to poke.

    The guy's got issues, no doubt.

    I don't have an opinion on how he should have been dealt with. What troubles me more is how freaking paranoid the public has become of any action, word or picture that refers to or symbolizes a firearm. When people start to panic in a crowded theater because someone points a finger at them and makes a bang-bang noise, it shows you just how effective the anti-gunners and socialist media have been at creating fear.

    On the plus side, at least he didn't have a Pop Tart chewed into the shape of a gun.

    Seriously though, disorderly conduct? Yes, I'll buy that. But damn, did this really need the police?
    Frankly I think it would have been simpler and more effective if some of the staff simply "had a few words" with him out back.

    It should have been obvious that he was just some kinda idiot. (His cerebral hemorrhoids were acting up again). But all it took was some hysterical dingbat to yell "Gun! Gun! Gun!", and get the whole crowd hysterical. That s**t could have caused a stampede and gotten somebody trampled. The "perp" was not the only idiot in the theater.

    This situation in general points out to the fact that society in general is becoming a tolerant-of-everything bunch of pussies. Stick yer head in the sand, "THEY" will take care of it.

    I agree. Someone should have knocked him on his a#$ and when the cops arrived they should have told them "It was dark officer, I thought he had a gun".

    Seems there were a lot of "good sheeple" at the show !

    As noted elsewhere, in a rational, self-sufficient society, this (obviously disturbed) individual would have been ejected - by the management and/or several "concerned males" - and left for the police to deal with. But this story line exemplifies how we've been largely castrated, (when it comes to controlling our living spaces) by the dictates of self-appointed mavens of "PK" behaviors the rest of us must adhere to. Of course these same "mavens" never encounter this sort of situation in their world because they subborn our tax dollars to ensure the purity of their life style. >MW

    Millwright - I think you'd enjoy "Nation of Cowards" by Jeff Snyder. I've read it 2-3 times. He gets at the ethics of what you are talking about.

    I couldn't view it because of all the friggen pop ups on the site. From what everyone is saying, I probably would tackle the guy, hold him however possible, and wait for the cops to come. If he is crazy enough to do it with an imaginary gun, what's to stop him from pulling out a real one? I don't need another regret to add to my life.
